These aren't stupid questions at all. If you are thinking of carrying and want a laser option, there are holsters out there that will accommodate rail mounted accessories. Check out the Phantom LC at Raven Concealment Systems - HolstersThe reason I wanted the crimson trace was because it would fit in holster while mounted on gun.As far as Internal laser, I've also heard mix reviews (no way to adjust). Is it pssible to change amby safety to just right handed safety to acomadte the crimson trace. Hope these are'nt stupid Q's.
